Coaching update 3/31/2017: 

USA Curling has given Steve Brown 30 days’ notice that his consultant agreement for the position of National Wheelchair Team coach is being terminated. This is the result of actions he took at the 2017 World Wheelchair Curling Championship that are in violation of the terms of his consultant agreement with USA Curling.

Assistant coach Rusty Schieber has agreed to serve as interim head coach of the program at this time. USA Curling will be reviewing the program and coaching staff overall, and at some point in the near future will decide whether to open up an application process for the head coach position, or to make other arrangements.

National team named: 

2016-17 national team members: Steve Emt, Jimmy Joseph, Penny Greely, Kirk Black, Justin Marshall, Meghan Lino, Pam Wilson, Matthew Thums
